Guest Photos Early August 2008

Guest Photos - Early August 2008
Another batch of fantastic guest photos and thanks very much for thinking of us. At the bottom in the middle is Alexandra in Washington, D.C. and she is the focal point of this article in the Washington Post. As they say in that neck of the global woods, "You GO, girl!" Great article.

All in all, looking back over the past year of Copenhagen Cycle Chic, it is quite amazing to see how things have snowballed. It was as lonely as a Finnish winter until other sites started cropping up, followed by Flickr groups and then, late in 2007, we started seeing coverage in newspapers in the UK and the US. It's increased in intensity here over the summer in the US as the media has realised the people are taking back the bike culture. Here's an article from Canada, another from Australia, and this one from Washington, DC.

It's an amazing development to behold. Funny, too, considering the fact that this cycling chic thang is hardly a newfangled thang here in Europe, but it's great to watch it develop. All I did was coin a phrase - Cycle Chic - and start photographing a theme - it's all of you who make it grow and spread the Style Over Speed word - especially with wonderful guest photos like all of them we've published on the blog.

Let's keep it snowballing, shall we? A good, stylish tailwind to you all.

I really love the look of all the red bikes. Perhaps my next bike should be red .... hmmmmm

How fun to see my photo on this site!! This site has been an inspiration for me this year ... so much so that in two weeks I will be riding the streets of Copenhagen (woo hoo).

Also in Guadalajara México we can see this kind of bikes now. I lived in Italy for 4 years and I really miss this style of life.

Hope soon we can do the same here.

Greetings and great photos!
